Madonna has released X-rated album art for Madame X

The 60-year-old superstar shared a ‘portrait of a lady’ which displays a woman’s breasts with a rose through one nipple on Instagram on Tuesday, 11 June, just days before she releases her new record on Friday.

Alongside the nude artwork, the singer wrote: “Portrait of A Lady… Madame X. Album drops June 14th #madamex. (sic)”

Madonna also shared another picture of herself in a colourful designer gown, fishnets and her signature ‘X’ eye patch, and wrote: “Mother of dragons… Madame X Album drops June 14th X #madamex. (sic)”

Meanwhile, the Like a Virgin hitmaker is set to appear at a iHeartRadio ICONS event to discuss the record.

Madame X features recently released singles Medellin, I Rise, Crave with Swae Lee, Future with Quavo and Dark Ballet

Madonna – who will kick off her extensive ‘Madame X’ world tour in September – recently explained that I Rise was written for “all marginalised people” as she was announced as a performer at Pride Island as part of World Pride in New York City on June 30.

She said: “I wrote I Rise as a way of giving a voice to all marginalised people who feel they don’t have the opportunity to speak their mind.

“This year is the 50th anniversary of Pride and I hope this song encourages all individuals to be who they are, to speak their minds and to love themselves.”

The Material Girl singer was recently honoured with the Advocate for Change award at the 2019 GLAAD Media Awards.

She said in her speech: “Fighting for all marginalised people was a duty and an honour I could not turn my back on, nor will I ever.”
